What a treat to hear this story through Khaled Hosseini's own voice. This book follows the same great writing style and character development that I have come to love in Hosseini's other works. I am sad it is over and am already missing the characters.
Having listened to the first 3 books of this very lengthy series I am invested. Until now I have been incredibly impressed with Roy Dotrice's ability to give life to each character through voice. I have just started the 4th book and do not think I can continue listening. The change in the voices of the characters I have come to know so extremely well is utterly disappointing and is ruining the experience. Secondly the change in pronunciation of names and towns is not only confusing but frustrating. I think I am better off picking up these books and reading the rest of the series myself so I can stay true to the characters I know and stop try to correct Roy's new performance of the series. I am at least relieved to know that there was about 7 years between his performance of the first 3 books and the last 2. I wish he had taken the time to relearn the characters that he spent so many hours introducing us to previously.
Great book, the series keeps getting better!
Roy Dotrice is fantastic!! He does a great job individualizing the characters with different voices. His narration is one of my favorite parts of listening to this book!
